Students bring Pop-Up Adventure Playground to campus

BLOOMSBURG—Community members and families are invited to bring their children (12 and under) to the Bloomsburg University Student Recreation Center for a Pop-Up Adventure Playground on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Pop-Up Adventure Playground will feature re-purposed loose parts such as recyclable items, household wares, natural materials and miscellaneous items that are not sharp or made from glass. There is no charge to families or children to attend and attendees can come and go as they want.

BU’s Pop-Up Adventure Playground encourages inexpensive ways to play with everyday objects rather than commercial items. It allows children to make their own choices about how and what objects they will play with.

The playground will be operated by BU students and faculty. To execute a successful Pop-Up Adventure Playground, students and faculty are seeking donations of high-priority items such as cardboard boxes/tubes, duct tape, painter tape, child-friendly box cutters, plastic cups, sidewalk chalk, crayons, fabric carpet squares and wallpaper samples.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 9,600 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
